Cyber Link Power DVD software user review by James Meyette

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Cyber Link software has become popular with computer manufacturers as it usually comes with any computer that you buy. Released about 16 years ago it is well designed and has been through many changes with the user interface and some functionality changes.

Some of the features include: Blue-ray and DVD playback, DTS-HD channel surround sound, up scaling of DVD,s and standard definition files to HD, GPU-accellerated conversion of 2D movies into 3D Movies and other features as well.

It also has built in support for subtitles with different formats including SSA, ASS, PSB and others allowing the user to have subtitles in their language of choice.

The only downfalls with this piece of software is that if you don't have a HDCP complient computer than you are not able to use the Blu-ray player, things that are also needed for this is a video card, cable and monitor that support Blu-Ray videos if you are using version 11+ and since version 9 there is no support for HD DVD's. Which is a downfall for some users.


  • Great features right out of the box
  • Comes with most computer systems at purchase for no extra charge


  • Newer versions no longer have support for HD DVD's
  • Newer versions cant use Blu-Ray formats unless you have the apporpriate hardware and compliences
  • The package that comes pre-installed on most systems is sometimes considered bloatware

I am a PowerDVD user for some time now, and I must say this latest edition is in another level. It is very complete and advanced unlike other related software. It certainly brings out the best of your multimedia. PowerDVD can play lots of video clips and audio formats including Blu-ray, DVD and CD, and as well as your photos. You can also access the content of your social media account like Facebook, YouTube and others. Moreover, I am also impressed with its TrueTheater, it improves the quality of your videos and sounds. It has a configurable library that helps you handle and arrange your media compilation. Furthermore, it has PowerDVD Remote that can be downloaded on your Smartphone and tablets, and let your gadgets serve as a remote control for PowerDVD and your PC as well. All in all, Cyberlink PowerDVD 14 is fantastic multimedia software with comprehensive and capable features that lets you deal with your media content with ease.
